So Little Time, So Much Damage

An editorial in today's New York Times points out that while Duhbya has less than 77 days left in office [see my countdown in the sidebar over there⇒ for the exact time], he's not about to waste any of it. In fact, his administration is picking up the pace with regard to dismantling environmental, privacy and abortion protections. In the words of the NYT,
" could take months, or years, for the next president to identify and then undo all of the damage."
(Assuming the next president WANTS to undo the damage.)

Want an example? How about the Environmental Protection Agency not protecting the environment at all? It is about to
"...issue a final rule that would make it easier for coal-fired power plants to locate near national parks in defiance of longstanding Congressional mandates to protect air quality in areas of special natural or recreational value."
And there's a bunch more, sure to piss off lots of folks. Go raise your blood pressure - read the editorial.

    At least I'll assume the next president DOES want to undo the damage.

    Yes, we did!

    The editorial was heartbreaking.

    Astonishing but then, the Republicans may be a while out of office and will want to do all they can to hinder the Democrats on the way out the door marked EXIT. x

    How dare Bush do anything in his last few days !

    Next, he'll be pardoning FALN terrorists, cocaine traffickers, half-brothers, ......

    oh, wait, Bill Clinton did that. Guess that makes it OK.

    We haven't even gotten to Bush's pardons yet. At least that will have to be done in the light of day.
